I hope you had a wonderful Christmas (and Boxing Day too, to my Canadian pals)! I have a few samples of the tags I used this year.  Even though these are Christmas-themed, they can EASILY be changed to birthday, Valentine's Day (not too far off, huh?!) or really any other holiday.  They are that simple.

The background is Circletastic.  I used a PTI die for the tags it was very easy to create.  I scored it first and then folded it so it cut through 2x.  I just left the fold out of the die so that part of the tag didn't get cut off.

I used the snowflakes from Christmas Medley for my gift tags.  For my baked goodies, I used a PTI set I've had for a while.

That little ceramic dishes came from Michael's - they were $.50 each! SCORE! I simply wrapped some bakers twine around the dish, to hold everything together and it was done.  I filled it with homemade chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, chocolate-peanut butter squares and homemade salted caramel (this one is to die for).  For my two bosses, I also ended up sticking a gift card into the back.

I'm also happy to say that I finally got an SLR camera for Christmas this year! YAY - no more plain old point and shoot!!! I'm really excited and I'm trying to get the hang of it all (the last time I was able to play around with aperture and f-stops was my Senior Year in High School and I won't say how long ago that was!).  I just wanted to share a few shots I've taken.

If you click on the image to enlarge it, you can really see the difference in quality!!!! I'm so excited I can finally focus on certain things and blur the rest of it!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'll be back soon!
